Boston – ICD, an independent trading and investment risk management technology company, offers treasury participants at the AFP National Conference in Boston an opportunity to learn about the various ways to align investment strategy with values.

Key Takeaways:

• Oceana donation from ICD Foundation

ICD’s Tom Knight, EVP & Treasurer, will join Qualcomm and Jefferies to educate treasury on the power of technology to drive efficiency beyond trading and how technology empowers global treasury teams to diversify into funds such as ESG’s.

ICD Portal’s selection of investment products includes many social mission focused funds, including minority-owned, veteran-owned, ESG and LEAF funds. Two socially responsible fund providers, DWS and Federated, will review their approach to ESG portfolio management during in-booth (304) sessions at AFP.

The session features General Stewart, a three-star general who will discuss his experiences on the front-lines in many US conflicts abroad.

During the conference, for every Treasury practitioner who participates in an ICD Portal demonstration, ICD Foundation will donate $50 to Oceana, a nonprofit dedicated to saving the world’s oceans. In addition to helping the environment, the practitioner will receive a plush dolphin and a certificate of gratitude.

Please stop and visit ICD booth 304 to learn more about how socially responsible investing can be a part of your investment strategy and help ICD and Oceana in the fight to preserve the world’s most precious resource.
